  • Plenty to do, friendly staff. The park is kept very clean. Very impressive considering how busy the campground is
  • In my opinion, the Lewis and Clark Reserve is one of the best camping spots in South Dakota! Enjoy the long shoreline, and spectacular views -- just try to avoid the mayfly spawn... and book a campsite in the winter!
  • Wonderful campground with clean shower/bath facilities. Mature trees, great trails, nice beach.
  • Always great boating! One side of the dam or the other is usually very calm and the scenery is amazing! We love it!
  • Great place for boating, lakeside walks, and cycling. They also have some little cabins they rent, but make sure to book one way in advance if you're looking to camp there.
